Morning links: Jaydon Mickens, Kevin Smith a dynamic duo for Huskies

It’s unlikely anyone would’ve predicted this before the season: Through five games, Washington’s two leading receivers are sophomore Jaydon Mickens and senior Kevin Smith.

Mickens has 30 catches for 273 yards and two touchdowns. Smith has 21 catches for 367 yards and two touchdowns.

“They come to practice every day with amazing energy,” UW coach Steve Sarkisian said. “They’re probably two of the more positive guys on our roster outside of Keith. Just a positive attitude. They love being out here every day and it carries right over into the game.

“Their attention to detail is tremendous. They’re both playing with a lot of confidence right now and a belief in their ability.”
